  • New Premium Titles: Access to the latest editions of sought-after titles, including the seminal Antitrust Law Developments, the Premerger Notification Practice Manual, Consumer Protection Law Developments, and Competition Law Outside the US.

  • ABA Antitrust Law Section Flagship Periodicals: Access to the Antitrust Law Journal, Antitrust Magazine, and The Antitrust Source.

Enhanced Legal Research Experience

vLex is the only place researchers can search across antitrust archival materials, and US primary law from Fastcase that features Cert, a negative citator that identifies cases treated unfavorably in subsequent decisions. In addition, the collection will be enriched by hyperlinks to cited full-text US primary legal materials on vLex so that users can seamlessly navigate between primary and secondary law on a single intelligent platform, on both desktop and mobile.

This extensive collection is published by the ABA’s Antitrust Law Section, the world’s leading antitrust and consumer protection professional membership group, and is designed to be a cost-effective reference and research tool. Individual Antitrust section members have access to special member pricing and an online purchase option when navigating to vLex from the Antitrust site. Competitive pricing is also available for non-members, and Academic and Enterprise accounts via a vLex representative.


"With more than 70 antitrust treatises, updated continuously and published by the leading Antitrust authority, the ABA Antitrust Library is the definitive guide for practitioners. No antitrust library is complete without this essential collection." - Ed Walters, vLex Chief Strategy Officer, co-founder of Fastcase, and Adjunct Law Professor at the Georgetown University Law Center and at Cornell Law School.

“We’re excited to launch the new and expanded vLex subscription product, which will feature digital access to the Antitrust Law Section’s sought-after titles at highly attractive rates. This is another way in which the Section is innovating to deliver value to its members. We look forward to continuing our partnership with vLex, which makes it possible for more readers to access these valuable materials.” - Hartmut Schneider, Publications Officer at the ABA Section of Antitrust Law.
